The Queen's Platinum Jubilee Volunteering Award
This year, The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service (QAVS) is running a special additional award to commemorate the Platinum Jubilee. We want to celebrate fantastic work by national charities and their volunteers to empower young people and provide them with skills and opportunities.
This award recognises 20 excellent charities working at the national level to empower young people (16-25) and provide them with skills and opportunities, with volunteers playing a key role in delivering this work.
Applications will be submitted directly by national charities during May to mid-June. 'National' could mean either UK-wide or with a reach across the whole of England/Northern Ireland/Scotland/Wales. Details and an application form is available on the dedicated web page.

July-September: Applications judged and final awardees agreed
Late October: Awardees announced

Applications will be judged by a panel chaired by Sir Martyn Lewis CBE (QAVS Chair). A list of the judges is attached.
